For a large part, what I am today, I owe it to Bharati Vidyapeeth’s Institute of Management Studies & Research (BVIMSR). Bharati Vidyapeeth’s Institute of Management Studies & Research prepared us for the world outside in a very holistic manner. The teaching at the Institute – apart from some very good professors, was strengthened by industry professionals taking many of the subjects. A very fine balance of academics and real life practices. But, very importantly, BVIMSR taught us to be winners. The values of being thorough, hard work, creative thinking, perseverance and being strategic – these are some of the traits that perhaps got honed very deeply in us all. I, in fact, see it in our entire Batch of 1984-86, 1st batch of BVIMSR.

Some of the very special things about BVIMSR that I believe made the education very relevant in today’s world are the diversity it had on campus which trained us all to work together, appreciate different perspectives and build creative solutions close involvement of industry, which allowed us to experience practical application of concepts being taught. Individual mentoring by professors led each one of us to explore our potential. I do want to acknowledge BVIMSR for playing a big role in making who I am today.
